. >> thanks so much in carraacasc venezuela. >>> hoping to build momentum following the presidential debat debates, president obama stumping in california, mitt romney also on the road after what many saw as a lackluster debate last week for the president in particular. he's hoping the new lower unemployment rate will give him a boost. the president is attending a fund-raiser in los angeles, and then he heads on to ohio. mitt romney in the meantime is spending the weekend in florida where yesterday he spent much of the day preparing for the next debate. it's a must-win state if he wants to capture the white house. >>> and, of course, you don't want to forget that the vice presidential debate is this thursday. joe biden and paul ryan squaring off. our cnn coverage begins at 7:00 eastern time. >>> all right. some news for your car out there. honda is recalling 268,000 crvs, its popular suv, model years 2002 to 2006. they say there's a faulty window stwich in the driver's side door, and if it gets wet it can start fire. no crashes or injuries have been reported but honda knows a four-switch f
the last presidential -- the first presidential debate. obama now at 45%, romney at 49%. that's a significant shift from before the debate when the president was ahead by eight points, 51% to 43%. but let's dig a little bit deeper right now. this question, all likely voters who were asked answered, obama doesn't know how to turn the economy around, do you agree or disagree? 54% said they agree with that. 44% they say disagree. that sounds like trouble for the president's reelection campaign. >> that does. that number -- first of all, the top-line numbers are surprising because i believe pew has been a pr pre-pro obama poll. pew's been pretty good for obama. the top-line numbers are really surprising. have to see if other polls show the same thing. but as you point out, that's the key number, the economy. how does obama get out of this box of voters being not happy with the economy? but up until now, willing to perhaps give him another chance. i'm surprised. i'm surprised the debate turned things around, if they indeed have, that quickly. obama has two more debates to turn thin
they thought of the first presidential debate. >> i thought obama could have drilled mitt romney on a lot of. >> i think as a democrat myself, mitt romney had some really good points. obama could have been a lot more aggressive. and do not spend the first 20 seconds of the first presidential debate wishing your wife happy anniversary paired >> mitt romney came out and did what he was supposed to do. he had been on the attack. things were not looking good for him. it was a natural for him to come out and the defense. >> it was incredible tonight to see mitt romney who has been beat up and dehumanized to finally become human for so many people. but you see a compassionate, extremely well-composed an absolute presidential timber. he really is not only well- versed, but he can hold his own anywhere. and i do not think that has been seen in the last two or three months by most americans cared >> i was really disappointed by the debate. i think that, what president obama had substantive points, he was meandering. i expected better of him. governor romney was pressed on what you're going to do spec
. the problem for mr. obama is that's debatable. it's not a fact unless you are spike lee. the presidential debate this evening should be a passionate display. he has to call out barack obama on the muddled economy. the governor has to do that in. when that happens, the president will lash back pinning romney as ruthless rich guy who wants to exploit working americans. i can't imagine romney is going to take that without a stinging come back. the debate has a potential of being rowdy. i want to see these guys go after each other. they are so dramatically apart in belief systems. every american should understand the huge gap. the pressure is on mitt romney tonight but he has plenty of verbal ammunition. in less than an hour, we will see if he uses it and that's the memo. in a moment, carl rove, dick morris, kirsten powers, leslie marshall and dennis miller will all weigh in on the debate this evening. the factor will be back after these messages.

of denver, where last week's presidential debate was held, gives president obama a slight edge over mitt romney in colorado, a key swing state. 47% to 43%. paul steinhauser joins us live now. what do you make of all this? >> reporter: the new poll numbers. those are pretty much in line, john, with what we saw prior to the debate. other polls conducted in colorado, as you mentioned, a key battleground state, where the president had a slight edge, same story. this new university of denver poll. among independents, the president has a double-digit lead. when are we going to see more polls? you're going to see a bunch over the next 48 hours the next couple of days leading up to the vice presidential debate. a bunch of major organizations, including cnn, are in the field right now. in key battleground states and with national surveys, john. >> the president coming off of the heels of what many are considering a lackluster debate performance. even he was poking fun at it over the weekend at his hollywood fund-raiser. >> and everybody here, incredible professionals. they're such great friends.
the morning after the first presidential debate and the big question is where was president obama? too bad he didn't show up last night. mitt romney sure showed up. he was aggressive, he was assertive. he was animated. president obama was passive. he was eloof. sometimes it looked like he was asleep. the difference is, of course, that president obama told the truth. mitt romney told nothing but lies. hey, we'll continue to analyze the debate from every direction and take your calls at 1-866-55-press. but first here she is. lisa ferguson standing by with today's current news update. hi lisa, good morning. >> good morning everyone. let's talk about the romney lies as promised, here is fact checking from last night's presidential debate. starting out, romney's claim that he would not raise any taxes on middle class americans. the first problem with this is that it is just the latest in a series of flip-flops. first he promises tax cuts across the board then he says don't expect any big tax breaks because he's also get
: just ahead of tonight's presidential debate the race is tightening. president obama, governor mitt romney have their work cut out for them. in the final stretch of the campaign as the race narrows nationally and in some key battleground states. "nbc news-wall street journal poll" finding president obama is in the lead now with 49% vote compared with governor romney 46%. that is down from the five point lead the president had earlier in the month. mary katharine ham, editor-at-large for hotair.com. fox news contributor. juan williams is fox news political analyst. he is out in denver. good to see you both. mary katherine, the president, however has a commanding lead among women. why is that? what is he going to do about it? what is romney going to do about it and is romney going to try to address that tonight? >> well i think in 2010 there was a swing towards republicans among independents and among women. the republicans actually won them in 2010. i think that freaks democrats out rightly and they went on the rampage on this messaging, you heard the war on women theme all summer lo
-span viewers what they thought of the first presidential debate. >> i thought obama could have grilled mitt romney on a lot of the things. i love the point he made -- the 47% comment. i think he could grow more. i do think mitt romney did a very good job of bringing forward his arguments. i do feel he was a bit rude in interrupting president obama and the moderator both. >> and i think that even as a democrat myself, mitt romney had some good points. i think that obama could have been a lot more aggressive in this debate. you do not spend the first 20 seconds of the first presidential debate wishing to write a happy anniversary. >> romney did what he was supposed to do. things are not looking good for him. it was natural for him to go back there and be very defensive, as he was to 92 it was incredible to see mitt romney --. >> -- it was incredible, to see mitt romney, who has been dehumanized and beat up, to become human for so many people. you see a compassionate and well composed and absolutely presidential timbre. he is not only well-versed, but he can hold as down anywhere. -- his own a
and attack lines that barack obama didn't. this is the second chance in the presidential debate. there is not another actual presidential debate until october 16th. bill: listen how paul ryan explains how he sees vice president joe biden. >> he is fast on the cuff. he is a witty guy. he knows who he is and been doing this for 40 years. so, you're not going to rattle joe biden. joe biden has been on the national stage. he ran for president twice as sitting vice president. bill: probably a smart strategy. what he is saying there, be careful and do not underestimate the vice president, despite a reputation for having gaffs. >> well, this is what you always do. you talk up the other guy a lot of pick pubs believe he will clean joe biden's clock. paul ryan has mastery of the federal budget and fact and details. he has a way of connecting with middle class voters especially middle class voters struggling economically. he has a way of touching them. republicans should watch out for that. bill: a lot of stories will be written how vice-presidential debates do not matter. in this case th
victory over the president in the first presidential debate. that changed the story of the whole campaign. if you have ryan defeating the vice president joe biden it would really create a story of obama-biden on the ropes. and, romney-ryan on the move. bill: the way mike murphy explains it, republican strategist on "meet the press" sunday morning, democrats could be desperate. do you agree with that? >> they're certainly very worried. the degree of concern they had over the president's performance in denver is much deeper than we even thought. they're very, very worried about that. they're looking for joe biden to come out and deliver a lot of zingers and attack lines that barack obama didn't. this is the second chance in the presidential debate. there is not another actual presidential debate until october 16th. bill: listen how paul ryan explains how he sees vice president joe biden. >> he is fast on the cuff. he is a witty guy. he knows who he is and been doing this for 40 years. so, you're not going to rattle joe biden. joe biden has been on the national stage. he ran for president tw
screen with barack obama. obama was tentative and on the defense and struggling to put words together and mitt romney came out and acted very presidential and that came through. stuart: one word? >> and saying he could work with democrats and worked with democrats in the legislature in massachusetts proved he can sit down and work with people of the opposing party and get things done. something barack obama is incapable of doing because he is a fierce ideologue. stuart: not the nasty rich guy -- [talking over each other] >> going to sit down and make things work. competence is what people are craving right now. stuart: i will say something i try not to do very often. i was wrong. i thought no matter what happened the liberal media would paint the debate as an obama victory or at worst day tie. the performance was so stunning on the part of mitt romney even the most liberal newspapers and columnists had to acknowledge it. had line from the washington post rejuvenated romney hammer's obama and his economic record. the l.a. times, lackluster obama, revived romney. dennis: use. where was
omitted last week between president obama and romney. the issue of sensible gun laws. the first presidential debate took place a short distance from aurora, colorado. a victim had a message for the candidates in an ad that airs during the debate. >> this past summer in a movie theater in colorado, i was shot. shot in the face and neck. but i was lucky. in the next four years, 48,000 americans won't be so lucky because they will be murdered with guns in the next president's term. enough to fill 200 theaters. when you watch the presidential debates, ask yourself, who has a plan to stop gun violence? let's demand a plan. it didn't get an area. joining us is comedian chris. john warner and rebecca, contributor to the magazine. i feel of two minds about the debate. focus is good. depth is good. i was appreciative they allowed depth on the issues they talked about, but frustrates there's only so many of these. one is foreign policy. in terms of domestic policy, the next debate is basically it and the vice president debate. i feel there's a lot of stuff i want to hear them on. the othe
. >> sean: on the eve of the first presidential debate, a bombshell is about to be dropped on the 2012 race to the white house. you will hear from barack obama like you have never heard from him before. a video has been uncovered from a campaign event in 2007 of then candidate obama, speaking before an audience of african-american ministers, including the reverend jeremiah wright. the tape was obtained exclusively by the daily caller web site. but you are about to see it right here on "hannity" for first time. it contains some of the most divisive class warfare and racially charged rhetoric ever used by barack obama. portions of the nearly 40-minute speech can be found online in an edited video, shot by the daily press newspaper in hampton, virginia. however, that version runs only about 9 minutes and omits the most inflammatory comments. it also does not include any references to reverend wright. in addition, it was covered by other mediautelets, including the associated press and local television stations. but the most outrageous comments were completely ignored, further proof that the ma
wasn't worthy of his time or attention in this presidential election. gregg: sean, let me go to you. earlier this month a cnn poll found governor romney leads president obama among likely independent voters by a substantial 14 points. 54%, look at this, to 40%. he also leads among independents in critical swing states like ohio and florida, and yet, "u.s. news & world report" points out there has been almost no mention of it in the media. i wonder why? >> well, i think what you are starting to see is that independents are largely part of the 60% of americans that think this country is off on the wrong track and right now that they are giving a stark contrast to what this election presents in terms of more government centered country or a free enterprise system that governor romney offers, one that rewards innovation and entrepreneurship. but the bigger thing that you also see in the numbers is, in eight of 12 battleground states the democrats really lost a lot of voter registration. when you look at battle ground states, in 2008, president obama won state like wisconsin by 14 points
that it could still swing back after the next debate. we have the vice-presidential debate coming up on thursday but the bigger one will be following week at hofstra university when mitt romney and president obama go head-to-head again. that is different kind of format. the town hall format. president and mitt romney will talk to individual voters asking questions, that may be a better format for the president. jon: but it does seem that states like ohio and nevada are getting tighter, and you know, with, well the election is four weeks from tomorrow. if that momentum holds for the romney team, it could really be a surprising turn around come election day? >> it certainly could. of course the romney campaign and republican national committee did a big turnout drive this past weekend. they have been doing a lot of that. we've seen it, we've seen it more from democrats. they have been exposing some of their organizational advantages all summer long. we're just now seeing how much the romney campaign is doing in some of these states. you're right, it absolutely could turn around. until we see romne
requesting for my daughter. i asked the caller to take a message. i am from the obama campaign and i am calling to inquire how your daughter would be voting in the upcoming. my daughter is a practicing catholic and would not cast a vote for a presidential cand date who is disrespected the catholic faith. because of abortion and health and services . forces catholic to pay for abortion control and pills and sterilization. >> gretchen: did she say anything about mitt romney. she said i am a practicing catholic and i whole heartedly supporting obama. i said you are understanding of the pope's five nonnegotiablables that our bishop tells us. that abortion is an evil . she said president obama does not support abortion. i said did you not watch the national convention where planned parenthood was speaking about the support for abortion . she told me manned parenthood supported children's health and pregnancy care for women. i said are you kidding. planned parenthood is the largest provider of abortion. >> did they discuss mitt romney's faith and him being a mormon . >> yes, they did. well, h
, president obama is starting to get his edge, we're back in the place now, a surprising place to be this year. and the next couple of debates, the vice presidential debate next week, they will take on added significance, i really didn't think we would be here at this point in the campaign. >> and i'm going to say, just in bottom line, i said it just got really interesting this week. there was sort of a trend, and i think there were a lot of people out there putting predictions prior to this past week, and now look where we are. but eleanor, you said mitt romney was skilled in mixing facts with falsehoods, and did little last night to create a bond of trust with the people. his glib, even slick performance may score with the debate coaches, but the american people may not be similarly wowed. do you still feel that today? >> yes, the fact checkers are still all over mitt romneys, reversing some of his ideas, and his key proposals. so i think he is paying a price for not having formed a bond of trust with the american people earlier in this campaign. the fact that he -- convention was a missed o
on the campaign of former deputy assistant to president obama. california state university northridge, he discussed the 2008 election and how those lessons can be applied to this year's campaign. he also analyzed leadership, communication and the use of words and presidential campaigns. this is an hour and 15 minutes. [applause] >> all right. thank you very much. you okay with? well, thank you. this is something of a homecoming for me. as laurie said, i actually grew up until i was in the third grade, i lived in lakewood california. and i spent a lot of time in this area. this is a holiday place for me. all of my relatives actually lived from norwalk to be female, so every holiday for about two decades, this is where we came every christmas, thanksgiving, so forth. so it is a great honor to come back here. i'll tell you a little bit about myself. when i was in third grade, i move to three rivers california. anybody know or sequoia national park is? i lived in a town called three rivers california. and i had about the same 10 kids i went to school with every year until the eighth grade. an
